Lab Team

Hilary Cullen

Hilary Cullen is completing a Master of Science (Kinesiology) degree through a combined project between the UVIC Concussion and Rehabilitation Neuroscience laboratories. Her research interests lie in the influence and assessment of post-concussion postural balance. Hilary completed a Bachelor of Kinesiology (Honours) degree at Acadia University in Wolfville, Nova Scotia. Her thesis topic investigated the influence of ankle taping and spatting on range of motion, perceived stability, perceived comfort and performance in male varsity football athletes. While studying at Acadia, Hilary worked with the Sports Injury Assessment and Management program as an Assistant Student Therapist with the varsity football, basketball, and swim teams. Through this involvement she gained a keen interest in Athletic Therapy and sport injury management.

Outside of the lab Hilary enjoys running and swimming. Since moving from the East Coast she has been enjoying spending time exploring all the activities Vancouver Island has to offer.
